Biweekly Fellowship Circles and weekly Beloved Community Wednesdays are among the small group ministries that build centers of trust and friendship by sharing and listening to each other ponder a wide range of topics.
Our Committees and Hospitality Teams also offer the opportunity to develop deep bonds while doing the good work of the church. We hope you’ll find a home with one or more of these and/or the following groups.
Join us every fourth Monday at 7 p.m. in the UUFP Office building. During COVID onsite events cancellation, check HERE for our current online gathering details. We are a casual group of people who enjoy exchanging books and sharing about the books that we have read. All are welcome, whether or not you have read the chosen book.
Women's DrUUm Circle
The Women’s Drum Circle meets the fourth Saturday of the month, at 7:00 p.m., in UUFP Sanctuary building. During COVID onsite events cancellation, check HERE for our current online gathering details. Women and their children are welcome. Please feel free to invite other drum-minded women to share in the fun and the power of this event.
Bring your drums and a small dish to share, if you feel so inclined. (Food allergen labels are available at the church.) Fellow members of the group will have extra drums so don't feel as though you have to bring a drum to participate.
Our potluck feast and women's sharing begins at 7:00 p.m. with drumming for healing and empowerment to follow. Please let us know at least a week in advance if you need childcare arranged.
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. Join us on Facebook at UUFP Women's Drum Circle.
